In brief: IOP, ICP

Yes. Increased intracranial pressure (icp) and increased intraocular pressure (iop) are often a positive correlation.

In brief: Rarely

The most common ocular manifestations of increased intracranial pressure are papilledema (optic disc swelling) and transient visual obscurations (brief periods of blurred vision).
